DIY Handmade Reusable Cloth Diaper Wipes & Bum Bottom Spray

I’ve officially entered the world of cloth diapers. Never in a million years did I imagine myself ever saying that. Just the thought made me want to get sick..And then I got used to poo. It doesn’t even phase me anymore. One of my friends spoke so highly of it that I thought it would be worth a try. Little did I know, I would become obsessed with collecting every color of the rainbow and doing extensive research on every little aspect of cloth diapering. 

So here we are..trying out various brands (Charlie Banana and BumGenius ROCK, by the way) and I am quickly realizing that I will forever be in charge of “diaper-changing sessions” as Jordan absolutely despises the whole idea of reusing something you pooed in. I’m sure he will give in eventually.

Something that I realized was a huge hassle was throwing the diaper in the wet bag and then having these random wipes that I would have to get rid of. Sure, I could just throw them in a trash can separately, but I prefer just throwing them in the diaper and being done with it. SO…I decided to make my own reusable cloth wipes last night when Declan went to bed. I was able to make 18 wipes last night in about an hour and a half. I am by no means an expert seamstress, but even these can be made by beginners:)

DIY Homemade Lavender Sugar Scrub

Let’s just say I am {obsessed} with this stuff. Not only do I love it because I know exactly what’s in it, but also because it leaves my skin feeling so amazingly smooth. I started making it solely for my belly. It was so dry after Declan was born and I had read from various places that a sugar scrub helped with any moisture issues. And it may be coincidence, but I swear my linea negra faded after using it too..I’ll blame it on the scrub;)

I quickly fell in love with this stuff and use it exclusively as a body wash now. It’s so awesome that even Jordan loves it! I ran out of the first batch and he was quick to ask when I was going to make more..That’s how you know it’s a keeper..Plus it is SO EASY to make!
